Decoded: the Most 'Artistic' Listings In the Country

New, 2 comments

Welcome back to The Brokerbabble Glossary, where Curbed takes a word or phrase that shows up repeatedly in listings and deciphers its true meaning. Ideas? Hit up the tipline.

To determine the legitimacy of this listing's "artistic" claim, let's turn now to Tolstoy, who, in his essay "What Is Art?" wrote, "Art begins when one person, with the object of joining another or others to himself in one and the same feeling, expresses that feeling by certain external indications." He then continued, "Or, you know, just some orange paint or whatever." Okay, he didn't really say that, but in his defense, Leo had a somewhat skewed perception of what real art is, having never been to Texas.

Whoever installed this molding was a true artist (before the accident).

Do the doors sketch or something?

It's true: they're a lot quieter when they're dead.
